Admittedly, venturing into the creative industry requires an incomparable amount of patience and perseverance. While some notable creatives have succeeded in reaching the peak of victory, some equally-talented artists frequently miss their window of opportunity. And because the industry thrives in a cutthroat environment, most of these artists are left on their own. Seeing how these challenges continue to plague the lives of most creative individuals, Caroline Adegun steps in to give these artists a ray of hope.

Dedicated to becoming a beacon of hope for struggling artists around the world, Caroline Adegun made it her life’s mission to provide a platform where she can help these individuals thrive in a competitive environment. So, just like silver linings on gloomy days, Caroline decided to create The Hollywood Wingwoman – an avenue where creative individuals can run to whenever they are consumed and overwhelmed with failures and disappointments that the industry brings.

Built around the pillars of creativity, passion, and dedication to help and alleviate difficulties, The Hollywood Wingwoman is a non-profit and mission-driven talent development firm designed to help low-income influencers, and homeless entertainers flourish in the creative industry. By working together with professionals and Caroline Adegun’s outstanding expertise, it serves as a training facility for artists to build their confidence and develop critical skills proven to be useful in staying in the business. The company also helps these individuals define their brand and equip them with the necessary tools to get ahead in the industry, like creating commercially viable products and establishing a fanbase.

Being more than just a breeding ground for rising talented artists, The Hollywood Wingwoman takes pride in its ability to encourage these aspiring hopefuls to remain steadfast in the pursuit of their dreams. To Caroline Adegun, the creative industry’s competitive atmosphere often takes the vigor of artists in pursuing their goals. And as a result, half of these talented creatives would succumb to the whims and caprices of their misfortunes and shift their focus entirely to more practical goals. Believing in the fulfilling experience of being able to chase after one’s dreams, Caroline places faith in God, empowerment, and motivation at the core of The Hollywood Wingwoman to instill in the minds of these hopefuls that everything is possible if one believes it to be.

But aside from possessing good qualities as a non-profit organization, The Hollywood Wingwoman owes much of its success to the commitment and zealousness of its founder, Caroline Adegun.

A two-time alumnus of George Washington University, Caroline Adegun took it upon herself to shape her life according to her chosen path at a young age. Caroline graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Psychology and Organizational Communications and subsequently finished her master’s degree in Education and Human Development. With her expertise and exceptional ability to build relationships, Caroline landed a job in the corporate world as a Senior Recruitment Professional.

But after years of working in human resources, she began to realize how wide the gap is in the creative industry. As an artist herself, she was able to spot some struggles that continue to plague creatives around the world. And for this reason, Caroline Adegun left her two-year job at the corporate scene to start building a non-profit organization exclusively designed for struggling artists and entertainers. Thus, Hollywood Wingwoman came into existence.

As a personal and business brand consultant, Caroline Adegun teaches clients how to brand and market themselves online and in social settings. Caroline is also a Plus Fashion Marketing Creator, and is dedicated to being a voice of body inclusivity in the fashion industry. She and her best friend Carmen Rosas recently launched their own dancing fashion series that showcases body inclusive brands and their killer dance moves. 

Caroline has partnered with multiple industry experts, including Erica Lauren, Sophie Turner, and Chardline Chanel-Faiteau, as well as Personal Stylists Nekiah Torres and Tiera Adeyanju (Atarah), to provide clients with one-on-one mentorships and consultations throughout the program.

In the coming years, Caroline Adegun hopes to see The Hollywood Wingwoman expand its reach and continue to inspire more artists along the way.
